....the NFL green lighted making this about the gun in the player's hand because they are scared to death the public is going to start questioning the brain inside the player's head and the drugs inside the player's medicine cabinet with team doctor signatures on the bottles. This guy had a history of head injuries and was on several pain killers and concussion related medicines.
Remember Chris Benoit, wrestling fans. The initial idea was steroids, but the coroner report on him indicated some pretty serious past brain injuries. (Benoit killed his wife, young son, and then himself a couple of years ago for anyone who doesn't know). Now look at the NFL. Currently they are in what could easily become a fight for survival with former players who suffered from head and brain injuries. A number of these players have fought everything from depression to substance abuse to outright breakdown of their faculties and all of them have said the teams and the league doctors threw pills at them, sent them home, and then encouraged them to be right back on the field next game. Throw into this the fact that the specter of a Congressional investigation into the safety of football has been raised already, long before this incident, and you can see why the league would LOVE to see the majority of the media focus on the firearm aspect of this crime....
